Hi everyone!

Would anyone be so kind to explain to me the exact different usages of these 2 idioms? When is it appropriate to use each of them in their different context?

Thanks!

determined by is used when the target is a law or a solid truth, such as :

"hormonal activity is determined by gender"

determined from is used when the target is data

eg. "the activation sequence of hormones was determined from the gene code for protein R3"
